The New York Giants play host their MetLife Stadium co-tenant, the New York Jets, on Saturday night sports and action preseason matchup. This is usually the most pivotal game of the preseason schedule because their starters play their most snaps ahead of the season-opener. This contest carries momentousness to the Giants for a number of reasons.
The Giants come into this exhibition game with a high hopes. The franchise have looked mediocre in their first two preseason matchups as their passing game is off and the team’s offensive line looks like a row of turnstiles at a long queue line in Black Friday. Apart from that, some of their stars like wide receivers Odell Beckham, Jr. and Brandon Marshall got injured in their last contest against the Cleveland Browns.
The teams in the NFL will be trimming down their rosters from 90 players to final 53-man in less than a week. So, it is now or never for the professional American football players to prove their worth and show why the Giants franchise should keep them. The backup quarterback clash between Geno Smith and Josh Johnson still need to be settled.
The Giants star wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) and Brandon Marshall (shoulder) are doubtful to play in this third-week game, though neither has been proclaimed out. While Mark Herzlich (stinger) and Michael Hunter (concussion) are among other Giants who will potentially be sidelined.
